Review: You all know that I love Amanda Bonilla right? No? So I’ll tell you, it’s a wonderful writer and I’m totally in love with her Shaede Assassin series. But you’ll tell me that it’s not this series here but we discover a new whole story. Yes, yes you heard right, a brand new series: Sentry of Evil. Then of course, the characters and the story are completely different but it was really great to discover another book of the author.

Jax is a young woman who works for Sentry. She is a killer who hunts at night to protect the population of McCall. But she is not alone in this adventure and she is accompanied by a bearer who is supposed to help her to carry her emotions when she needs it, find the tracks while sounding people or even healing her when she needs to be. But now, everything would be better if our young heroine had not broken up with her friend and colleague. She can not know if what she feels is hers or if Finn influences her to make her believe what he wants. To understand all this, she needs time away from him and yet it is complicated when the man is very jealous. But fate does not end there, and here comes in the city: Micah, the bearer who does not seem to know what he is and who is irresistibly drawn to Jax, and vice versa. They will also quickly have to team up together when a wave of terrible murders comes to town, leaving them full of questions. But in addition to this, we must not forget that Micah is a novice on this new life and he will have to learn what to do on the job.

I loved Jax. She tries to live while avoiding the easy solution continuously available to her. Of course she hurts and she blames herself for many facts, but she remains determined to control her emotions and not let someone else wear them. Emotions can define a person and she is determined to be what she really is even if it’s difficult sometimes. Yet it is not easy for Finn to accept that, as he wants to live with her, and never quit her, to the point that he tries to handle her feelings so she can understand his own. I must say it is a bit difficult to decide about this character. It is very interesting to discover his feelings and it breaks our heart when we see how difficult it is for him. He does not understand that Jax needs time, and so do him. But I confess that I am very curious to read more about him in the next book now that we know a bit of him throughout the story. And what about Micah? This character is also very interesting to discover and I confess that I can not wait to see him again. He does not hesitate to embark on a world he does not know, far more dangerous than what he has seen so far, all to help and save Jax. This is a lovely man and full of courage just waiting to share something with our heroine. I enjoyed him, it is quite difficult to create a character strong like him and at the same time who shows such sweetness and tenderness in his feelings and his behavior. But of course, it is the same for him, I’m very curious to learn more about him.

This novel introduces us many things. Several colorful characters, an intriguing world and a mysterious organization. Amanda Bonilla managed to win a new challenge in this great novel and I recommend it if you’re a fan of urban fantasy. It’s a nice discovery and I am more than curious to read more now.
